Try going to Control Panel and look for a touchpad icon. Failing that, there might be one for "input devices". Once there you should be able to disable the touchpad and activate a mouse.

SOURCE: sensitive touch pad

Hi, click on start and control panel. go to mouse properties. Try to look for a tab that says either touch or touchpad. you can change the sensitivity settings there. however if this doesnt work, this could only mean that this is a physical problem with the toucpad. try to apply pressure on the outer side of the touchpad. if it moves, you're gonna need a replacement palmrest.

My typing keeps jumping around on my Dell vostro 2520 laptop, shut on internal pad but still jumps around with my Logitech mouse


Regular answer for this problem is to update BIOS / Touchpad drivers. Since you have already disabled the internal touch pad, can you also check if you have a track-stick that needs to be disabled. That should fix your problem!

The cursor jumps backward in text. It jumps several lines up and down.It also does not respond to a simple left tap when I need it to open or close wish to delete something. I am not accidently doing...


Replace the mouse with a known good working one.
If you are not using a mouse (bad news) the touch pad may be failing.
In that case, an easy test and fix is to disable it in "Control Panel" then install a mouse in the USB Port.

If the problem is corrected then it is your touch pad.

Here is a link to the manual from Dell. FREE!

See Page 42 on disabling the Touch Pad.

Go to EBay and insert "6000 Dell Inspiron touch pad". It's cheap but difficult to replace.

The arrow on the mouse kepts junping around ?


You are probably using a laptop with a touchpad. What is happening is that your thumbs are touching the touch-pad as you type and the cursor is jumping around. Solution: disable your touch pad. You can go to Start > Control Panel > Mouse > Touch Pad > Disable

Another solution is to go to the Dell website > Support and Drivers > download and install the Synaptics Pointing Device driver and disable your touch pad using the options in this new driver.

Jumping letters on acer laptop when I type


You need to disable the touch pad while typing. During typing your palm can accidentally touch the touch pad causing the cursor to 'jump' randomly resulting in the problem.

You have not mentioned the model but on Acer laptops there's a key in the upper row with a 'pad and finger' figure on it. If the figure is in blue, press Fn together with the figure key to disable the touch pad and then again to enable it.
